I have Retrospect 9.0.1 installed on a Windows 2012 Server. I have 30 clients to be backed up, MACs and Windows machines. I have not gotten a successfull backup of all the machines since 9.0.1 was installed. The backup simply stops on the clients. It will be with 1, 2, or 3 files remaining. If I manually backup the client, it works fine. These are all scheduled scripts that run in the evening. I'm starting to get frustrated with that constant hangs. This product is much too expensive for this type of behaviour. Has anybody else experienced this?
ppepin posted a topic in Server, SBS and Multi ServerHere is my situation and any input would be appreciated. I have a Windows 2000 server that is connected to a domain. I am using this server as the backup server for 10 clients using RS 5.5.144 Workgroup edition. These 10 clients have the RS client installed on them and things have been working fine for many many months. Here is my problem. All of a sudden this message keeps appearing on an NT server on the network which just happens to be the PDC for the network domain: Messenger Service Message from [myservername] to [Primary Domain Controller Name] on 8/1/03 10:02PM Preparing to back up server volume. Please close any documents you're using on it and disconnect from it. I understand that this message will be prompted on the client machine if the "Lock Volumes" during backup option is set. However, this message is appearing on the Primary Domain controller which doesn't even run the Retrospect Client! This option has been set since the initial installation of RS and none of the clients have ever received this message, which I think is rather odd. The client I am currently at is extremely concerned about this as they fear I am backing up their PDC which is absolutely off limits! I need to find out why this message appeared on the PDC. Please Help. Thanks.
